Script Commentary

Script is roundish Alemannic minuscule, and, apart from the last pages, by one neat and careful scribe; his small script is similar to that of St Gall MS 40 (CLA 7.898): the nt ligature often occurs in mid-word. Later hands, saec. VIII–IX, wrote p. 564 ff. The whole manuscript was executed with much care.
